I had a similar situation here on Crete last year, two hooded crows had forced a juvenile Buzzard into a small tree and where attacking it, I made the choice and rescued it. My reasoning being that there is an abundance of these crows whereas buzzards are nowhere near as common. Many make think I interfered but in my mind I saved the youngster and my conscience is clear.

The right decision is whatever you (or I) decide, if intentions are good.

Female Powerful owl on the left, male on the right holding their most common prey, a Ring-tailed possum. This pair successfully raised 1 chick each year the past 2 years.
3 years ago the female had a chick with a previous mate, this male moved in and killed the male and chick. He has been an excellent father. This year they moved to a different hollow, started early and failed at the brooding stage. They have mated since the failed brooding and he continues to behave in 'nesting role', holding food during the day, feeding on it first in the evening then offering some to the female.
Photos taken with Sony RX10IV.

Thanks. She's extra alert due to it being a windy day.

3.5 klms from the centre of Sydney CBD. A pair of Powerful owls. Male on the left is holding a grey-headed flying fox. Their chick or chicks are about 25 metres away in a hollow. Due to fledge in about a week or so. Also, the dogs they are looking at.
Hard to say if they are wondering what they taste like or if they are concerned that they are possible predators of their chick.
